Assess, Measure, & Manage - Oh My!

I'm excited to share that I have a new article up over at TalentCulture titled, "Performance Management: Going Beyond the Appraisal." It is my hope that in addition to the sporadic pieces I write and manage to find homes for at places like TLNT, ERE Media, and others, that I'll be making a regular habit of sharing thoughts and ideas at TalentCulture going forward. For a sneak peek of my latest, read on:
Performance and performance management – it’s something every organization, be it a Fortune 500 or a non-profit or a public sector institution talks about. Odds are they talk about it a lot and despite all that talk it is still likely a topic that causes managers and leaders to want to pull out their hair and one that stirs feelings in employees ranging from dread to fear to mental eye-rolling. Some organizations tackle the challenging of reviewing and communicating performance via three-point scales or five-point or twenty-seven point; others embrace 360 degree reviews; some organizations have highly calibrated processes whereas others have “Oh, it’s that time of year again” approaches; then there are the organizations dropping the idea of formal performance appraisals in the goal of creating more dialogue and something better. The point: assessing, measuring and managing performance is complex and ever-evolving; but there are some core principles that regardless of where an organization falls on the spectrum of processes and approaches that hold true.
